Total Newbie with a stick problem
 
Hey gang. I just started playing tennis. Awesome fun! Now being a total newbie I bought a raquet on sale at my local sportstore. Its a wilson ncode n6. I am 186 cm and currently 114kgs but going down (mostly fat sadly). Now the question is. Is this a good stick to start out with? Someone told me that it wasnt heavy enough. Is there any way to remedy this or if I buy a new stick (I am very hesitant about this, seing I just bought the other one) what should I buy then? Any input is appreciated

Oh the weight of the raquet is 260g.

thanks in advance

/B

the weight of the racket is fine for a beginner; its light and head heavy which means it will be easy to swing through the ball and develop technique. if you personally feel it is too light and dont want to buy another new racket then you can add weight to your current frame using lead tape

A thousand thank yous to you. Ill will rent a heavier raquet and see how it feels. And after that I will go in search for the famed lead tape at the local tennis shop :)
